"A UK High Court ruling that police ‘kettling’ of student protesters was unlawful has been greeted with glee by many mainstream commentators, who seem to see kettling as a kind of modern-day brute Orwellianism. In truth, as annoying as being kettled is, this police tactic seems like a natural development in an era of flabby, formless political protesting. ... This is not in any way to defend kettling, which restricts basic freedoms of movement and protest." (04/20/11)
